I was recently invited to join a media trip to the North of the Philippines to discover what the Provinces of Nueva Ecija, Cagayan and the Island of Palaui have to offer visitors to the region. I was very much surprised by what i discovered.

I have sifted through my fellow bloggers Instagram Feeds and have a series of three posts lined up for you. This second set of 21 Instagrams highlights some hidden treasures of Nueva Ecija

Nueva Ecija is a landlocked province just 4 hours away from Manila and perfect for that getaway with the kids.  Hidden away in the Municipality of General Tinio are two attractions your kids and family will just love, Minalungao National Park and PMP Paradise Farm.

Further afield in the Science City of Munoz is the Philrice Research Institute which really opened my eyes to how rice will be farmed in the future.

I hope these photos inspire you to take the trip North this summer and discover for yourself the beauty of Nueva Ecija and North Luzon
